Robert Walsh was appointed chaplain to the British Embassy in Constantinople from 1821-1824 and 1830-1835. Thomas Allom was a British architect who left his practice to travel to Asia Minor, Constantinople, Syria and Palestine. The series, which originally appeared in this 24 parts (and later a two-volume edition), is one of the most characteristic travel albums of the nineteenth century. The plates, accompanied by Walsh’s text, show a range of views including monuments, palaces, markets, people and neighbourhood scenes.
